So today I am definitely happy to show you the recipe for this easy raw vegan Chocolate mousse. I usually do chocolate mousse with“real“ vegan chocolate, but this time I wanted to try a raw one. I think it turned out quite well and no worries here, you won’t smell the avocado at all. (Let me tell you this as a Non-Avocado eater!)
This was the first recipe I did after I had a long time off baking and creating stuff. Not that I was not motivated or something, but I started to experience a scary pain and burn in my chest and this kind of freaked me out.
One thing about me is that I am terribly afraid of dying. Especially when I am sick or when I experience irregularities in my body. It keeps me up at night and I am talking myself into bad scenarios. It’s not an easy fear to just work through are get rid off, because, well, I’m going to die.
I felt like sharing this, because thoughts were haunting me while writing this blogpost. Just wanted to leave it out of my head.
Now let’s leave this creepy topic and today the only dark thing should be this dreamy creamy chocolate mousse and not my thoughts.
To make the chocolate mousse you need NO baking or cooking skills at all.
You literally just combine the ingredients and let the magic happen.
The only thing is to have enough patience to blend the mixture long enough until there are no cacao crumbs or dates remains. If you are just working with a hand mixer, I suggest to soak the dates overnight in order for them to be really soft.
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 large & ripe avocado
- 4 tbsp cacao powder
dates,pitted and soaked for at least 2 hours
- 2 tbsp agave syrup
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- crushed hazelnuts
- Soak the dates in warm water for at least 3 hours. The longer you wait, the smoother the mousse gets.
- In a blender, mix the dates until you have a smooth paste. You can add some warm water in case your blender doesn't run smooth.
- Melt the coconut oil until it turns liquid.
- Combine the coconut oil, agave syrup, avocado, cacao, dates, and vanilla extract in the blender and blend until smooth.
- You might have to scrap the sides of your blender several times in order to get a really smooth texture.
